Very nice, one and all, MrILTA. I especially like the unique views of the first and last photos.

thistle Neat plant, mystery beetles

My July bloomers are performing poorly this year because of the awful drought so I am putting in a couple here from Last July just for grins. They are one of my most unusual prairie plants, Button Snake-root (Eryngium yuccifolium) and I have never seen the beetles anywhere except on these plants. Anyone for an ID?

(My first time uploading the photos, hope this works!)

I have a hard time picking a favorite...but have to admit a special fondness for those naughty fungi. I mean, what is more out there than a Dog Stinkhorn! Plus the smell, phew!

Great job--both on the photos and on getting them uploaded.

There is a specific thread for "those kinds of photos" Here's a link:
